Abstract：Objective To learn the characteristics of injury cases caused by animals in Wenzhou and to provide the reference for injury prevention. Methods We collected the data of injury cases caused by animals in six sentinel hospitals in Wenzhou from 2016 to 2018,and analyzed the animal species,the severity and the location of injury. We conducted circular distribution method for the seasonal distribution features of injury cases. Results There were 3 743 cases caused by animals in Wenzhou from 2016 to 2018,with 2 045（54.64%）males and 1 698（45.36%）females. About 43.68%（1 635）of cases were 15-44 years old. About 31.66%（1 185）of cases were students and preschool children. There were 2 445 cases（65.32%）caused by dog and 3 212 cases（85.81%）occurred at home. The results of circular distribution analysis showed that the third quarter of a year was the peak time of injuries caused by animals（Z=251.32,P<0.05）,with 1 342 cases accounting for 35.85%. Conclusion Most injury cases in Wenzhou caused by animals are caused by dogs and occur at home in summer,affecting children and young adults.
